Drug and Alcohol Prevention Programs

The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA)

The Drug Free Schools and Campuses Regulations (34 CFR Part 86) of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA) requires an institution of higher education (IHE) such as Youngstown State University to certify it has adopted and implemented programs to prevent the abuse of alcohol and use or distribution of illicit drugs both by university students and employees both on its premises and as a part of any of its activities. At a minimum, each institution of higher education must annually distribute the following in writing to all students and employees:

Standards of conduct that clearly prohibit the unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees.
A description of the legal sanctions under local, state, or federal law for the unlawful possession or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol.
A description of any drug or alcohol counseling, treatment, or rehabilitation or re-entry programs that are available to employees or students.
A clear statement that the institution will impose sanctions on students and employees and a description of those sanctions, up to and including expulsion or termination of employment and referral for prosecution, for violations of the standards of conduct.
